Chemotherapy involves the use of cancer-killing drugs that you can take by mouth, injectable medication, or intravenously. Generally, doctors use a combination of two or three chemotherapy drugs for breast cancer treatment, and you will need to receive these in a supervised cancer treatment center.

Your doctor may recommend chemotherapy for your breast cancer treatment plan if you plan to have or have had surgery to remove a tumor or if you have metastatic breast cancer.

Since you’ll likely need multiple sessions of chemo that can take up to several hours each, it’s a good idea to pack a bag with items that will keep you both comfortable and entertained. Consider these seven essential items to help get you started.
